to the boehner philosophy, which is a governing philosophy. the sort of -- chris: in other words, you don't need a majority of the republicans to rule. >> you break the rule, which is what he's done on these big-ticket items. they have been meeting over these last couple of days to figure out wait forward. i think the president was smart to step into these debates early and often and frame them in ways that americans can understand. and you have house republicans trying to play catch-up. chris: let me go back on this question four years ago. remember when lincoln came into office they were already plotting against him. he had to come in through baltimore and hide at the willard. this president had to come in against mitch mcconnell, the republican leader, saying my number-one goal in life is to get rid of this president. >> and he failed. so i think it's different in some ways and not different in others. i think we are still going to see a very large portion of the republican caucus that believes deeply in what they believe in. that have districts at home that will support them very strongly ag

know, boehner used to say that, the house proposal doesn't say that, dollar in cutting for every dollar in raising the debt ceiling. >> would you support a short-term measure to force you to pass a budget? >> i think it should be longer because we don't want to play fiscal cliff every three months. but it's a positive step. >> you never get a clean debt ceiling raise. >> yes, you should. >> that's not a question of whether you should. but historically it's not been the case. >> mitch mcconnell proposed it two years ago and we passed it. but let me say this on the budget. we democrats have always intended to do a budget this year. for two reasons. first, it is not true that we haven't had budget control in effect over the last several years. the budget control act of 2011 put rigid spending cuts that are in effect -- that were in effect last year. we cut $1 trillion. we didn't like it. it was much more of a republican type proposal than ours. in effect, it expires this year. so we need a budget. but second, it's going to be a great opportunity for us. because in our budget that we will p

're upset with john boehner because of -- they're saying we're not getting sandy relief as fast as we need it here. >> well, we will get the relief, i'm convinced. boehner has promised to do it. i can't tell him how to run the house, and he's not trying to tell us how to run the city. he's got to decide when it makes some sense to bring it up. he's committed to get it done. we will get the money, and we will use it intelligently and recover. there's still in new york city alone, there are probably 7,000 or 8,000 homes without electricity, heat and hot water. >> jimmy: gosh. >> and it was all the floods that came in, and the houses weren't ripped down. they're still there, but they were so flooded out. and, of course, in your basements, where all of your equipment is, and it got ruined. >> jimmy: not to keep bringing up bad stuff, but sandy hook elementary and the awful tragedy there. >> well there's just too many guns in the world, and certainly in this country. we've just got to do something about it. this was a crazy person with an assault weapon, but there's 33 people killed in america

. in a letter to john boehner, treasury secretary tim geithner said the step has been taken before during previous impasses over the debt limit. several republican lawmakers are set to direct treasury to prioritize which bills to pay if congress doesn't raise the debt ceiling. let's get you a check on the markets. futures are lower as we get big earnings this morning from jp morgan and goldman sachs. we have jpmorgan lower whereas goldman sachs is higher. stocks advanced yesterday with the dow extending the winning streak to five days and the s&p 500 hitting a five-year high. we get data out on consumer prices, industrial production and housing. watch out for that. back to you. >> seema, thank you very much. it's 5:17. as you know, facebook yesterday announced the new search. we'll look at what it can do in a bit. >> we look forward to that, thanks. >> 5:17 now. christina loren is back to tell us slight incremental warm-ups coming your way. >> i have fallen in love with my seven-day. we'll get a private room. i hope my seven-day is still single. i want to marry it. you might as well. look

and the jeers that minority leader speaker john boehner received along with a couple of other leaders, republican leaders in the house. it was out of place for this kind of a feelgood event, but, nonetheless, you could see the politics even on a day like today. you could see the politics never too far from where everybody else was. >> it seemed president obama spoke with a little more of a swagger than he usually does, and that's because he doesn't have to worry about re-election anymore? >> reporter: it's because he doesn't have to worry about re-elected. it's because he feels he's won the last two or three fights, and he has. including the raising of the income taxes and, of course, the delaying of the debt, another three months before they have to vote on that again, so he's feeling pretty good. he feels he has the republicans on a limb. i think you're right. he did speak with a little bit more of an attitude, if you will, today. not too much but a little bit more. he's trying to tell people, look, we're going to get out there and pound the pavement on what we think is important an

between parties in the second term. we are making progress on that. john boehner tried to get his own party together. he's taken a few of the more extreme people in his party off of their committee assignments to try to get them onboard so that he can negotiate deals with the president. it's been very difficult. sometimes he'll negotiate something with the president and then his own party doesn't cooperate. i think there will be a little bit more effort especially in this first year to try to come together and get some things done. but time will tell. >> okay. if you were going to summarize, what's on his agenda for the next four years? i know that's a tall order. do your best. >> in many ways it will be a continuation because obviously he had an ambitious agenda the first term and didn't get things done. we still have troops in afghanistan. we still have guantanamo bay open. he promised to close that. there are a lot of foreign policy issues on his plate. obviously the economy continues to be a major source of trouble. and the budget. trying to get the debt ceiling increase which see

john boehner, harry reid, house majority leader eric cantor and house democratic leader nancy pelosi. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ >>> everyone is listening to the marine band, the president's own. we have been blessed, we should point out, with today's weather. we're losing the sun a little bit. there's a light cloud cover that just now chose to move in over capitol hill and continuation of that may bring us some snow showers. but it's a bright day and it's so much warmer than last year. last year, we woke up, it was 19 degrees. and by the time the president was taking the oath, i believe it goes to a balmy 28, winds at 13 gusting to 23 if memory serves. and today it's just much more comfortable. and you think to think for all the folks on foot moving around this city, some of whom have traveled great distances to be here. it's just much more comfortable. and someone pointed out a few flurries in the air would make a beautiful television picture later today, mike i can't tellal beschloss. >> maybe we can arrange that. as long as we're talking about weather, ronald reagan had the distinction of t

-- if congress acts on this, house speak her john boehner will have to play a significant role on this. yesterday after the president's remarks, the speaker was noncome mittal, saying there was little urgency to act. >> david keane, president of the national rifle association. thank you for being with us. >> thank you. my pleasure. >> i'll start with the quote of the mother of a 6-year-old who died. people who want to own firearms responsibly have nothing to fear from the president's proposal. you represent those law-abiding gun owners. what do they have to fear? >> they have a good deal to fear. they have to fear the establishment of the national registry. in the last few days, a senator from california and governor of new york suggested one of their goals is what they call a forced buyback. if you can get a record of who owns firearms, then the government could force them to sell those guns back to the government. >> let's talk about the proposals -- fair enough. let's talk about what's been proposed by the president. starting with universal background checks. why would it not be in the interes
